Mila and I spend a lot of time outside. We tend to our plants, play with our cats, and eat out there too. Since our outdoor areas are so important, we decided to do a DIY Outdoor Art Display to make it even more homey.
Mila makes a lot of artwork. Most of it gets showcased on here. She is so proud to show it off and it makes me smile every time I see it.
Why wouldn’t we take it outside?
Plus, outdoor living doesn’t have to be boring. You can add colors and pops of personality. Just make sure it’s covered from the elements and you’re good. There’s also a ton of weatherproofed items you can purchase.
Here’s what we used for this outdoor art display:
- Two pallet boards
The biggest project was the shelf. All we did was screw the boards together. We could have painted it, but I like the natural look. Then, we screwed the shelf in the siding and put nails where the canvas went.
After that hard part was done, it’s decorating time.
I loved how all the elements came together. Mila’s artwork was the star of the show, but there’s other elements that we love Thats inside our house.
The plants we chose love humidity and are covered from the sun harsh rays. It’s also a great way to propagate them and add glass pieces. The rest of our porch is covered in plants too!
Of course, we had to add Jensen’s block. It’s our way of having him close to us no matter where we are around the house.
I also loved the picture of Mila and the eagle rock too. All things that make our space ours.
With a few nails, screws, and pieces of pallet wood we created our perfect art display. It truly was a simple process that had a big impact.
Since I have wood siding, I think it made this project a little easier. If you have vinyl siding, all you would need is different screws. It isn’t too much different!
At the end of the day, I’m so happy for this little DIY. It’s helped me center on self care and taking a moment in the morning and evenings.
I can’t wait to see what Mila creates for it next.
